Michigan Democrat Governor Asks Feds for Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Coronavirus, Four Days After Banning Use…

On Friday March 27th Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer threatened to revoke the medical licenses of doctors and pharmacists who prescribe hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus in Michigan.  Four days later, March 31st, the same governor asks the federal government to send her hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus patients. Go figure.

MICHIGAN – […] “We want to ensure that doctors have the ability to prescribe these medicines,” she said. “We also want to make sure that the people who have prescriptions that predated COVID-19 have access to the medication they need. And so all of the work that we’ve done is trying to strike that balance.”

In its approval letter, the FDA wrote that “[b]ased on the totality of scientific evidence available to FDA, it is reasonable to believe that chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate may be effective in treating COVID-19.”

“When used under the conditions described in this authorization, the known and potential benefits of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate when used to treat COVID-19 outweigh the known and potential risks of such products,” FDA Chief Scientist Denise M. Hinton wrote in the approval letter. (more)

            Correct! And why do you suppose Cuomo gets national coverage DAILY??? Any other governor giving daily pressers and receiving the coverage he’s getting? Nope. He’ll be the nominee at a brokered convention – despite his lie that he’s not ‘running’. The Demonrats know they’re toast with Bite Me Joe. Andrew is their guy, who is well spoken (Libs like this – not being concerned with character, only outward appearances), and ‘looks presidential’, With this assumption in mind, it’ll likely be a tougher race than we expected.

              Not many people, even in his state, like Governor Cuomo. It has become obvious to everyone watching out here, that this is a deliberate attempt to give Cuomo exposure by the media and democrats for the Dem’s change of their Presidential nominee to represent their party. I am in NJ now and you never see Governor Murphy on the air at all and all you see is Cuomo – I despise both of them!

    It’s like she’s carrying out a schedule that was prepared for her months ago before the poo hit the fan on the virus. She’s in denial, and her army of Obama rejects and flunkies is running the state and doing it poorly. You don’t threaten doctors during a pandemic.

    As for me, I’m turning to the tunes to sum up this Whitless Whitmer.

    Song #1 “Everybody Plays the Fool” (1972 by The Main ingredient)

    Song #2 “Poor Little Fool” (1958 by Rick Nelson)

    Song #3 This is what Whitless Whitmer must ask herself when looking in the mirror:

    “What Kind of Fool Am I” (1989 by Anthony Newley) A song that lends itself to comments as to exactly the kind of fool Gov Whitless Whitmer is!!

    This is Sammy Davis. rendition

    Lyrics- Satirical by yours truly, Bob Parker

    What kind of fool am I (Treepers please comment below)
    Who took advice from above
    It seems that I’m the only one
    That I have been thinking of

    What kind of President is this
    An empty shell
    A lonely cell in which
    An empty heart must dwell

    What kind of lips are these
    That lied with every word
    That whispered empty words of fear
    That left me feeling like a turd

    Why can’t I do what’s right?
    Why can’t I give a damn
    And maybe then I’ll know
    What kind of fool I am

    What kind of clown am I (Treepers please comment below)
    Who else on the right can I screw
    Why can’t I cast about
    All those who doubt
    And tell my people what to do

    Why can’t I do what’s right?
    Why can’t I give a damn
    And maybe then I’ll know
    What kind of fool I am

    I don’t remember Governor Whitmer calling the pharmaceutical companies to ask for these medicines. I am sure she would have told us. When the virus first hit Michigan her first comments were aimed at the federal Government for not helping us. You wanted the job. Its not the federal Governments job to tell you what to do. You Miss Whitmer were supposed to take the lead. The major difference between Leftist/Liberal/Democrats who want the Federal Government to handle everything and the Conservatives who think things should be handled on the state level. I understand their logic when I see the incompetence of Miss Whitmer, threatening Doctors really? How sad. she’ll never get my vote. Whitmer and Biden, they will lead us into trouble for sure .

      A Frenchman commented the following :
      “That has been going on here in France for weeks. The treatment with hydroxychloroquine and azythrymicine is successfully carried out by Pr Raoult in Marseille.
      Administer at an early stage and after five days the patients happily walk out the door. 1 deceased person in 2000 treatments: a man aged 84.
      Hydroxychloroquine has been on the market since 1949 and is free of royalties. The treatment costs 25 cents per person.
      Coincidentally, this drug was removed from the “over the counter” drugs list by the French government in November 2019 (!) And placed on the “dangerous drugs” list.
      Remember that France has always had a left with Africa; so its loaded with people who have taken this drug for months if not years since 1949.
      After much ado it can now be administered BUT only in the last stage of the disease and NOT in combination with athrimytine, while Raoult clearly indicates that by then there is too much [corona]virus in the body to be combated in this way.
      And now you again …
      I’m not into the aluminum hats, but something is not right here.”

    Many doctors are already using Hydroxychloroquine and having great success, yet Dr. Fauci refuses to recognize this medicine as a cure for this virus. I’m beginning to think the doctor is enjoying himself and feels like a celebrity, so why spoil his fun. Also, he is a Democrat and I believe the Democrat party wants this epidemic to go on indefinitely so it would destroy President Trump’s reputation and hurt his chances of being our President for another term. I think most people think this epidemic was caused by China and the Democrat Party, because the Democrats didn’t succeed impeaching President Trump, which the Chinese leader also wanted, so China stepped in to hurt our country and President Trump. Please vote for President Trump for 2020 to get even with the evil heartless Democrat Party.

      Jealousy too happens in their profession, of course they will deny it. Anecdotal is Fauci’s mantra. Even if this thing gets worst, I don’t think sensible Americans will blame it on Trump, he has already proven himself almost 4 years now, his love for America, Americans is genuine! He has leadership, perfect in crisis management, that is why the media, pelosi and the rest of the coward democrats have not rallied to unite and forget politics and help America get through this. They would rather first thing in the morning find all possible angle to blame it on Trump. Daily briefing of Trump on the Coronavirus is an over analyzing of every single word Trump utters, to pin him down, itching on the aha moment. There is no other like Trump when it comes to fighting back at fake news reporter, it is a joy to watch their stupidity, and the comeback kid, jim acosta, he is back to prove more of his ineptness. And who would in their right mind vote for sleepy waky Joe, I mean even democrats deep inside them, they know he is a failure, but for party’s survival, they have to pretend. TRUMP 2020!
